KPilot broken--crashes before sync completes

Here is the diagnostic backtrace from KPilot. My Palm Zire 72 had been syncing successfully until yesterday, in which case it crashed midway through the sync every time. It's always as it's about to sync the Contacts, even if I turn off the Contacts conduit.

Using host libthread_db library "/lib/".
[KCrash handler]
#33 0x412ab59a in PilotLocalDatabase::writeRecord ()
from /opt/kde/lib/
#34 0x08193e48 in ?? ()
#35 0xbfffeee0 in ?? ()
#36 0x4122b031 in sem_timedwait () from /lib/
Here's the relevant text in ~/.xsession-errors

kpilot: WARNING: KPilot error: Pilot device /dev/pilot does not exist. Assuming the device uses DevFS.
kpilot: WARNING: KPilot error: Could not open device: /dev/pilot (will retry)
kpilotDaemon: ERROR: [virtual void PilotSerialDatabase:penDatabase()] Cannot open database Pilot database error
kpilotDaemon: WARNING: [bool KPilotDeviceLink::retrieveDatabase(const QString&,DBInfo*)] : Failed, unable to back up database
kpilotDaemon: ERROR: [void BackupAction::backupOneDB()] : Couldn't create localdatabase for PIMsSupportStatus-pdmE
KCrash: Application 'kpilotDaemon' crashing...
